Faculty Bio

Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology
Dr. Massey's research focusses on:  the importance of metabolism of drugs and environmental chemicals on the toxicity of these compounds; the consequences of carcinogen-induced DNA damage; the ability of certain chemicals to change DNA repair activity; and the mechanisms by which toxic chemicals accumulate in target cells and initiate cell damage.  Several different organs are studied, but there is particular emphasis on the lung and the colon as targets.

In 2015, Dr. Massey received the Society of Toxicology of Canada's Gabriel L. Plaa Award of Distinction for outstanding and sustained contributions to the discipline of toxiology in Canada.
